Gift Of The Givers To Donate Blankets To KZN Flood Victims

Gift Of The Givers To Donate Blankets To KZN Flood Victims..  Humanitarian organisation Gift of the Givers plans to donate 4,500 blankets to victims of the recent KwaZulu-Natal floods.

 

The blankets, which were crocheted by 67 Blankets for Nelson Mandela Day knit wits, were put together to make a giant blanket themed the Rainbow Nation Blanket of Hope. Knit wits is a name given to members of the 67 Blankets organisation who are spread across the country.

The blanket was revealed at Steyn City during a celebration event dedicated to the frontline healthcare workers who worked through the Covid-19 pandemic.

Founder Carolyn Steyn said it was befitting that the blankets be given to the Gift of the Givers for the humanitarian work they are already doing in KZN.
